Family Health History Day

Every year since 2004, the Surgeon General of the United States has
asked that we observe the day after Thanksgiving as Family Health
History Day. From his website: “Over the holiday or at other times
when families gather, the Surgeon General encourages Americans to talk
about, and to write down, the health problems that seem to run in
their families. Learning about their families’ health histories may
help ensure a longer, healthier future together.” One can begin
compiling that family health history with assistance from the
following website: <https://familyhistory.hhs.gov>. Researching our
families’ health histories may just provide us with even more reasons
to be grateful, since the health data we collect may help us extend
our lives.
